Archbishop Sample blesses worshippers after an extraordinary rite Mass at the close of a conference on liturgical traditions. 


Archbishop Alexander Sample was invited to preside at the closing Mass of a sacred liturgy conference held this spring in Herzogenrath, Germany. 

The Liturgische-Tagung, which includes talks on ancient rites, concluded with a solemn pontifical Mass in the 12th-century abbey church of Rolduc in the Netherlands, just a few minutes’ drive from Herzogenrath.

“The liturgy was glorious,” attendee Peter Kwasniewsiki writes on the New Liturgical Movements blog. “The majesty of the pontifical ceremonies conducted in the elevated sanctuary of a Romanesque church, accompanied by the chanted propers for a votive Mass of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the “Missa Misericorde”; by Jacobus Clemens non Papa (1510-1556), raised our minds and hearts to the threshold of the heavenly Jerusalem.”

Kwasniewsiki says participation in the liturgy meant taking part in “some action that is larger than us and embraces us.” He wrote that he felt “intensely involved, intensely connected with what was happening around me and before me.”
